A dream spot for me, this. You see exotics and all sorts and snap them, but a mint-looking AMC Pacer, cruising its way down one of the trendier roads in downtown Paris, just doesn't happen that often.

Wednesday night I spooted a nice early series 1 Jaguar XJ6 driving across Hayling Island bridge(shame it was fitted with non original Wolferace wheels!)

Apologies for the poor quality pic, but it was going too quickly. Anyway, spotted in the Roehampton Asda last night, but didn't get a decent look at it. I'm guessing Singer, but others might know better.

My part of rural Kent is excellent for classic spotting. Most recent was an early Triumph Spitfire, but rallies often go through my village in the summer.

Also, on the way to work this morning, I saw the front of what was possibly a sixties Ford Thunderbird parked outside a house in Tonbridge and was overtaken yesterday on the M25 by a Morris Minor Traveller (which, at 70 mph, was probably being flogged a little).

Spotted this wild 1948 Chevy Pick Up rumbling through New Malden high street yesterday, definitely brightened up my commute to work, loud and low.......way to go!

What made the below spot all the sweeter was that it was parked up in plush Hurlingham Club in Fulham, mere yards from 11 Alfa 8Cs and a bunch of other multi million quid kit (low chassis Invicta, DB4, C-type, Alfa 6C etc)...

spotted this Cortina approaching the Heathrow bottleneck whilst motoring back home last week, sitting inside my own Dagenham beauty!

can't remember the last time I saw a Humber Super Snipe (or is it a hawk?) especially in this guise! Artistic license applied to this rarirty! Spotted on the A12.

A rare car indeed,from the picture it looks like its diguised as a Rat Rod,love the 59 Cadillac rear lights.The Humber does share an unusual

piece of genius,the petrol filler cap is hidden behind the rear passenger stop light,the Cadillac as a similar piece of design,hidden behind the Sharks eyes between the rear bumper and number plate.
